Small Town Brewery in Bottles at Last


If you’re a fan of Small Town Brewery, you already know that you can’t purchase their liquid gold in anything but a keg. That is until now. The Wauconda brewery is releasing a few cases of Not Your Father’s 10% Root Beer in bottles for the first time in Illinois. The bottles will only be available at Binny’s in Algonquin that evening. We expect to see more at all of the stores in 2014. These few cases are expected to sell out quick, so get there early.

A Gem of a Beer Department in Algonquin


You may be wondering why there has been a lack of beer blog posts lately.  For the past five days, I have been working furiously on the beer department in our newest Binnys, located in Algonquin.  Yesterday afternoon, corporate beer buyer Ted Sullivan, Algonquin beer buyer Jim Kube and I completed the task we started at 8:00 a.m. on Monday morning.  The hard work resulted in one of the most beautiful individual beer departments in all of Binnys.
